You make your sales calls, follow-up, but it just seems like you are spinning your wheels and your career isn’t moving forward. Your dream is to become a sales “guru” but it isn’t happening.  What’s wrong?  How can you make it happen?

Excelling out there isn’t easy, especially in today’s volatile marketplace.  The first bit of advice is for you to take an inventory of yourself.  That’s what any sales guru is going to do.  They are going to take a hard look at where they, what they are doing, and what needs to change.

Here are some of the areas you want to take a look at:

  • Resonance
  • Listening
  • Commitment
  • Consultative approach
  • Follow-up
  • Lead generation
  • Forecasting
  • Training

We all need to make changes and be committed.  And when you can be honest with yourself first, you are on the right track to making your dream come true.  It can happen.  Make sure you have a solid foundation, you are able to grow and expand your accomplishments.

General Colin Powell (US Army, retired) once said, “There are no secrets to success: don’t lose time looking for them. Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty to those with whom you work, and persistence.”
